Our day-old Amberlink chicks arrived just over a week ago, straight from the hatchery through the USPS. It only took one day for them to travel all the way from Ohio, and they all arrived alive and healthy.
The brooder houses we built are working out well. They keep out the rain, drafts, and predators, while maintaining a warm environment for the birds. So far, so good.
I’ll leave you with a video of the chicks, just because they make you want to say cutesy things in a squeaky voice.
Notice the one on the left falling asleep in the heat of the lamp. I wish they always stayed this sweet and fuzzy!
